the thing is that 99.9% of people on Linux or the *BSDs don't even have
rc available. I don't think one should force users to install 9base
just so they are able to run packaging scripts or other scripts of some

Of course, given there is only one implementation, it is highly
portable per-se, given the interpretation is equal everywhere and 9base
is quite easily portable.
